- Wedding: August 2012 - Sunset Harbour
DH and I are finally about to go check out houses – with our price ranges, that means mostly short sales and foreclosures. We are fine with that and are looking forward to the hunt.
Unfortunatly, because of our crazy work scheduels, my first time looking at a house will be without my husband! I plan on taking tons of pictures and video, but is there any advice you can give me? Anyone have to go alone and share info with their SOs?

@b00kbug: My FI and I were eventually gonna have to look at houses by ourselves if we wouldn’t have found our dream house the last time we went to look at houses together. Taking pictures is a great idea. When FI and I talked about having to go by ourselves we said if one of us didn’t really like it there was no point in the other going to look at it because it would be a waste of time. We went and looked at houses together about 4 times in over 2 months(12 houses total), but we wanted to look at houses together for as long as we could until time was running out. We wanted to be in our new house and settled in before the end of Jan. because of the abundance of things we’ll have to finish for the wedding and after Jan is when the majority of it will start. I’m glad were getting it done before the holidays start and snow comes. That would suck to be moving when it’s cold and snowing out. Good luck!

@b00kbug: My DH had to go without me because I couldn’t get off on the day we needed to look at a foreclosure. He loved it and made an offer after checking with me. I didn’t even see the house until the inspection! It was nervewracking but he took pictures of EVERYTHING and we had talked extensively about what we wanted. I think the realtor was more freaked out about it than we were!
